You say driver side so I assume the filter being the oil filter? Check the tube that comes off the water pump, its the easiest thing to check, motor may need tk be on and at temp to see the leak?

Could be leaking in a lot of places and running down the back of the motor.

There's coolant lines to the turbo, in the valley of the engine that could be leaking. Best bet would get some mirrors and some kind of pressure kit to put the coolant system under pressure to look for leaks
